  • One of the original members of the Pussycat Dolls, Kaya Jones, says it’s her voice, not “lead singer” Nicole Scherzinger’s, that you can hear on the smash hits “Buttons” and “Don’t Cha.” Oooooooooh. (But, really, people, it’s all auto-tuned to hell and back anyway.) [RadarOnline

  • Oh, Fiona Apple, beacon of light during my adolescence! Why is the music industry so wretched to you? Fiona recently played a concert and a fan requested new material from the album that was supposed to be released three months ago. Fiona reportedly told the crowd, “I can’t remember any of my new songs because they’ve been done for a f**king year.” Now her fans are fighting for a leak — or, you know, an actual release. [PopDust]

  • The National Enquirer breathlessly tells us Nicole Kidman is nicknamed the “ice queen” on set. I believe this is true, sort of: I heard from an actress I used to live with that the reason Nicole doesn’t talk to anyone is because she doesn’t wear her contact lenses when she acts. Probably not true, but interesting nonetheless. [Celebitchy

When I was 25 years old, I was in a band. It was a dinky little coffeeshop folk-rock band, but MAN it was fun. I had just enough skill to compose but not enough to accompany myself, so I made embarrassing recordings of half-formed songs, brought them to my bandmates, and we workshopped them together. You know how being the lead singer of a band looks really fun? Well, it IS. Seriously. Keep reading »

Twelve previously unheard Amy Winehouse songs will be released on December 5 in an album where a portion of the proceeds will go to a charity set up in the singer’s memory. Amy recorded the 12 songs, which have been tweaked by her longtime collaborators (including Mark Ronson), at various points during her career. The songs will include favorites she performed in concert, like “Valerie” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”; “Body & Soul,” which she recorded with Tony Bennett before her death; and a brand new song called “Between The Cheats.” Amy’s dad Mitch Winehouse called the album “incredibly beautiful” and a “fitting tribute.” Aww, now my eyes are watering.

Britney Spears’ “Criminal” music video is out and if “Mob Wives” hasn’t locked it down as its theme song, they should. The song itself is typical Britney-meh and the video is Britney-awful. There’s not one but two incidents where the cameras linger on her official perfume. (Product placement, y’all!) Brit-Brit and her real-life boo Jason Trawick play passionate bandits who meet when he saves her from being roughed up on the street by a douchey date. A great message for the kiddies mob wives whose real lives are actually like this: it’s okay to trade one criminal for another — just trade up!  [Just Jared] Keep reading »
